This great little pack may not be the best for everyone, however. If you want lots of climbing-specific features, check out the Petzl Bug instead. You should consider, though, that the Bug will be on the bulky side for a leader's pack. For a great combination, try the Bullet and Bug in conjunction for longer routes.
If you are a true minimalist and dont mind taking a loss in durability, check out the Cilo Gear 20L worksack, which has 4 L more storage at a lower weight and climbs beautifully. You can also consider the REI Flash 18, which has 2 L more space at a lower weight AND price, but is less of a climbing specific pack. Neither of these packs comes with an external pocket, though, which is one of the nicest features on the Bullet.
This is sure to become your go-to pack. The Bullet will last for years and never let you down. So whats left but to shell out the 50 bucks and get out there?
